Spike Bentgrass is common and widely distributed in western North America, usually growing in moist ground in open woodlands, river valleys, tidal marshes, and swamp and lake margins; it also grows in dry habitats such as grasslands and shrublands. It extends from Alaska into Mexico. It readily colonizes roadsides and bare soil and exhibits ecological and developmental flexibility.
